Discover your visual language at UTS
We encourage you to experiment with both traditional and emerging design practices to develop your own visual language. This visual language is broad, encompassing typography, film, interaction and image-making, just to name a few.
Your Visual Communication Design experience
Visual Communication Design has a hand-on, studio based culture that is supported by a strong theoretical component. Students use both traditional and experimental methods to make work that is conceptually rigorous and socially responsive.
As a student you have the opportunity to work with industry clients on real-world projects and undertake work experience during your degree that will prepare you for your successful career in design.
Your Design career: from graphic designer to art director
Your future in design is limitless, with career opportunities in areas such as digital media, graphic design, web design, art direction, advertising, illustration, motion graphics design and branding.
George Saad: Bachelor of Visual Communication Design alumni and 2015 Design Institute of Australia Graduate of the Year
“I loved having the opportunity to work on so many varied projects; the briefs gave me the flexibility to explore completely different disciplines. My major project would not have happened if I didn’t learn graphics (layout and typography) as well as some web and exhibition design.”
Student artwork: The Inventory by Susan Le
The Inventory is an app that encourages children to explore science by upcycling everyday objects in fun experiments. Developed by Bachelor of Design in Visual Communication Design student, Susan Le, it was inspired by the maker movement and Arvind Gupta’s TED Talk of turning trash into learning toys.
“I believe that many exciting and powerful things can happen when you allow design to join forces with other disciplines like research, science, technology, and education”
